Electrode alignment inspector and method

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #6870122.

Method and apparatus for detecting unacceptable misalignment of welding electrodes. An electrode-alignment station is positioned adjacent a welding station. A robot controls the movement of the electrodes, and occasionally moves the electrodes out of the welding station and into an electrode-alignment station. At the electrode-alignment station, the electrodes are closed on a fixture that transfers electrode-misalignment into movement of a plate that triggers an alarm if the misalignment is greater than a prescribed amount.
